Summer PhotoBlog

This Summer we bought our first home.


So I’ve been doing a lot of gardening and work around the house.

Probably the best part of the garden so far is the sunflowers:


Of which the bees seem to approve:


We also have a New Orleans yard classic, banana trees, although they aren’t very large yet:


As well as a number of other plants in pots and around the house.

The cats have slowly settled in. Once they became acquainted with the local wildlife it all became a bit easier for them:

And before we knew it, Rosh Hashanah had rolled around again.


All in all remarkably busy – and that is just a brief overview! More to come soon!

Happy New Year 5775

Rosh Hashanah began at sundown yesterday evening, coinciding closely with the beginning of fall this year and starting of the Jewish High Holy Days. Like many Jewish holidays, food is important to Rosh Hashanah, and my partner requested I make this very complicated but delicious sounding recipe for Apple Honey Challah. Definitely not Cooking 101, haha!

I am pleased to report it came out wonderfully.
